I won't do hypnotism on a child if their parents are not with them. I would not recommend hypnosis on a child under seven or six. They need to have some training in that. It's not the same technique that we would do with an adult. Children need more training and more focus and understanding of how their minds work. But yes, a child can be hypnotized. Teenagers are more like adults, but I still would recommend a parent being with the teenager.


I find that kids can be more receptive to it than adults, because they haven't been bombarded with a negative concept that people used to believe about hypnosis. But I believe their most beneficial age is from like 21, 18-21 to 45 or 50, because in those areas of life, we already realize that nothing is forever and change is continual.
